How To Change Number of Columns in Divi Mega Menu

Jan 10, 2021 | Blog, Divi Tutorial | 0 comments

In this article I will share the steps to change the number of columns in the Divi Mega Menu.

If you are not sure what is the default Divi Mega Menu then please refer to the article Creating Mega Menus in Divi to understand how you can setup the Mega Menu in the Divi theme.

The code in this article will only work with the Mega Menu available in Divi. It might not work for any 3rd party mega menu plugins.

Here is a screenshot of how the default Mega Menu looks.

Divi Mega Menu four column

The Divi Mega Menu by default has 4 columns. There are no options in the Divi theme to change the number of columns inside a Mega Menu.

However the number of columns can easily be changed with a bit of custom css code.

The Mega Menu can be added inside the default theme header or inside the Menu module. I have separated the steps for each below.

Change Columns In Default Theme Header

Changing the number of columns for the Mega Menu in the default theme header is simple. You just have to use one of the codes below and add it to your Divi Theme Options.

Add Custom CSS to Change Mega Menu to 5 Columns

To change the number of columns in the Mega Menu to 5 columns, go to your WordPress Dashboard > Divi > Theme Options > General > Custom CSS and then add the following code.

@media (min-width: 981px) {
#top-menu li.mega-menu>ul>li {
    width: 20%;
}

#top-menu li.mega-menu>ul>li:nth-of-type(4n) {
    clear: unset;
}

#top-menu li.mega-menu>ul>li:nth-of-type(4n+1) {
    clear: unset;
}
}

If you not sure where to add the code then you can check the screenshot below.

To apply custom code to any module it is recommended to target it by a specific css class so that the change does not affect your entire website and cause any unexpected issues. Using a custom css class in the code ensures that only the module with the css class is affected.

So the first step is to add a custom css class to the menu module.

Add CSS Class to Change Mega Menu Columns in Menu Module

Open the Menu Module Settings > Advanced > CSS > CSS Class and enter the class lwp-col-mega-menu.

If you are not sure where to add the class then here is a screenshot to help you.

Add the below code at your WordPress Dashboard > Divi > Theme Options > General > Custom CSS.

@media (min-width: 981px) {
.lwp-col-mega-menu li.mega-menu>ul>li {
    width: 20%;
}

.lwp-col-mega-menu li.mega-menu>ul>li:nth-of-type(4n) {
    clear: unset;
}
